How to automatically open images in container fields in an external photo editor

Hi everyone,

I'm very new to filemaker pro so still feeling my way around. I have developed a basic database (solution I guess) to keep track of my bird sightings and photos. One of the tables (MediaTable) contains a container field (MediaContainer) that is used to store the path to my bird photos that I want displayed. This is all working fine. However, I would like to be able to double click on the image that appears in the container field and auto-open the associated file in my chosen photo editor (photoshop) so I can zoom in and edit etc. Is this possible? Any help much appreciated.

John
